Thanks for writing this piece, Maha. When I read that article, “7 Lies We Need to Stop Telling About Muslim Women Wearing Headscarves,” I was left wanting more nuance. The piece felt important, and I’m glad it’s being shared, however I also worried that it elided the very idiosyncratic relationships women have with headscarves. I love all the detail in your piece here (especially all the parentheticals, and in the way they reveal your own sometimes conflicted thinking). I am glad this conversation is sitting alongside our #moocmooc piece, and that we had other hard conversations in writing together. Feminism means, at least for me, a willingness to have those hard conversations. And a willingness to listen — and to fumble together through our thinking.
